A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape.
How it’s done:
- Decayed tooth material removed.
- The area is cleaned and dried.
- The cavity is filled with a filling material.
All fillings are done with composite filling, this is a tooth coloured filling, they are matched to the same colour as your teeth.
Fillings in regard to teeth positioning:

- Pre-molar: The fillings is placed in the 4th or 5th teeth.

How will I feel afterwards?

What happens if you don’t treat a cavity?
With time these harmful bacteria will create a little hole in the tooth, if it’s not repaired with a filling in time, the cavity will simply continue to grow. Overtime it becomes painful in which case a Root Canal Treatment is needed to save the tooth.
